Colors, amber, tangerine Gold and hues of deep scarlet Rustling in the quiet prayers Of those who hear His breath In the silence of a moment Whispering Autumn magic Melodies of gentle squirrels Preparing for the winter Charming birds in gilded coats Praising the creator with chirps Chortling songs, melodies Lingering on the crisp air Wonders alive, like dancing leaves Inspiring hearts and souls To listen to the vibrant glory Echoed in shadows, silhouettes Branches near emptied of hope Almost naked, they aspire the wind It’s the season of breathtaking Scenes, praising the One who made A way to leave the Summer’s heat With promise of humbling revelations Calling from the sing-song applause Of nature’s stunning abode Listen to Autumn’s silence shout This is the splendor of a season’s caress Kissing the heart and soul with joy Touching the spirit with earth’s precious laughter The soaring elation of God’s sigh Ringing His heavenly fascinations… As Autumn smiles!

How interesting - colors in the prayers of saints, why not?! Their is a scent that rises to the heavens. Then there is the praise from birds with gilded coats; branches near emptied of hope, almost naked, earth’s precious laughter, God’s sigh. This poem is beautiful, Gina!
